Experienced Movers Taking Care of Your Piano
Our experience as the area's foremost movers has given us the tools we need to be the most effective no matter what you task us with to move. We really have "been there, done that," so whether we are moving a grand, upright, electronic, or a baby grand piano, you can be sure that it will arrive in perfect condition.
Having so much experience has allowed us to understand what clients are looking for at a deeper level. We have created a streamlined moving process built for efficiency. We will show up, pad all of your piano's moving parts, pack it away, and put it safely in our well-equipped moving truck.
Going Above and Beyond to Protect Your Piano
In many ways, we have already gone above and beyond for you. Our detailed understanding of pianos and how they are built enable us to protect your piano correctly. There will be no fumbling around. Once you have told us what kind of piano we would be moving, we will come prepared.
We ensure that every mover who works for us has been trained to our high standards. They all know exactly how important it is to keep your piano safe and do everything possible to ensure it.
We Begin with an Inspection
Pianos are extraordinarily heavy as most of the internal structure is cast iron. Small upright pianos range from 300-400 lbs., standard uprights 500-800 lbs. and grand pianos weigh up to 1500 lbs. Moving your piano is at least a 2-person job, no matter the size of the piano. The ideal team size is 3.
Before we begin touching and moving your piano around, our movers will complete a walkaround inspection with their notepad. There are many kinds of pianos, so we need to know what we are working with and what condition it is in before we start planning the move. After all, your piano is delicate, and needs to be moved safely, so our team needs to be prepared.
Wrapping Up the Piano
Depending on the size and shape of your piano, we will begin disassembling it safely and carefully. If you have a grand or a baby grand piano, your piano is made of many different pieces that are strong but deserve special care.
Pianos are very oversized and are necessarily disassembled for efficient moving. It's just the reality of moving a piano, and we emphasize this point because it can be concerning to see your piano being taken apart, but please don't worry – we know what we are doing.
Piece by piece, we will carefully deconstruct your piano, wrap up the details in our padded wrapping blankets, and tape them up tightly. We will correctly remove every piano piece that can be taken apart and transport them safely and without damage, including all brass hinges. From there, we will bring the pieces safely to the vehicle and get your piano to its destination.
Reasons to Choose a Professional Piano Mover
There are many reasons not to move your piano on your own. As experts in all things to do with moving, you can count on us to bring your delicate piano to its next destination safely and, more importantly, correctly!
As we mentioned before, pianos are extremely heavy. Much heavier than they appear. Moving your piano on your own, especially without experience, can lead to severe injuries. Trust us when we say that it is not worth a serious back injury no matter how much you love your piano. Plus, we have all the necessary equipment to move your piano easily.
Secondly, pianos are oversized and almost impossible to move through doors, around corners, down/upstairs without the help of a professional.
Thirdly, pianos are costly. Why risk damaging it when calling Elite Moving Services Inc. is a simple way to avoid expensive repairs, or worse, replacements. Pianos can range up to $100 000, and some are irreplaceable family heirlooms. Just don't risk it.
Fourthly, despite their incredible size, weight, and price, pianos are incredibly delicate and can be easily damaged in a move. When you entrust our expertise to handle the moving of your piano, it almost eliminates the risk of damage and makes setting up the piano in your new place that much easier.
With all those factors considered and the potential risk of damage, the cost of our moving services is well worth it. If you want to know just how much it will cost to move your piano, please get in touch with our team to get a quote or ask any questions about the process.
The Right Piano Moving Supplies
In completing so many piano moves throughout the years, we have refined the supplies we use to move your piano and ensure it stays safe.
First, we will carefully remove the legs from the piano, the next move is to pad all of the moving parts, lid, and fallboard included. Before going further, we will double-check that everything is sufficiently covered and wrap the piano with our specialized protective cellophane.
Our movers will carefully tip your piano onto our wheeled piano dolly, and we will safely bring it into the moving van. Once in the truck, we will double-check everything again for security. The piano legs will also be padded and secured before departure. If you have any special requests or notes, please let us know. We are always accessible to our clients, and we will make adjustments to suit your needs
